A Saturday afternoon in Borough Market

On Saturday afternoon I met P and A from work for coffee in Borough Market - they'd been to the new Miró exhibition at the Tate so it was a bit of a late lunch. We settled in Patisserie Lila on Bedale Street, an eclectic wood furnished café with an iron spiral staircase at the back.

At the counter were macarons, huge lilac meringues and an assortment of cakes on stands of all different sizes. I had my laptop with me and was promptly told that working at it was not allowed - I hadn't intended too and it pleased me to hear that this was an establishment to purely enjoy coffee, tea, cake and time with friends.

We sat upstairs next to the large window which flooded the room with light. I ordered the spinach tortilla & a latte served in a beautifully large porcelian cup, P had a mini mushroom quiche & an espresso and A had a generously sliced piece of carrot cake & peppermint tea from her own individual teapot.

Patisserie Lila also does afternoon tea.
